Conventional gardening is an outdoor form of cultivation in which fertilizers and pesticides are used to control the changing environment while nano garden is an indoor method of farming in which plants are supplied with the required conditions for growth and use artificial lighting system.
We can take some time and look at conventional gardens versus nano gardens and see which are preferable and also see their cons and pros which all we need to expound on each of them. http://indoorblooms.com/ultimate-guide-kitchen-nano-gardens/
Labor and cost of production
In a conventional garden, a lot of labor is required as there is the use of weedicides before or after planting to prevent the growth of unwanted plants. Fertilizers and pesticide are also used in plenty for healthy plants.
This chemicals are very toxic and can cause even death if consumed. When it rains these chemicals are washed and taken to the rivers, lakes, and oceans where they affect aquatic animals’ health and reproduction. Fertilizers also cause soil erosion as the soil may become clogged thus affecting its drainage system making some soil to be washed away. Microorganisms in the soil are also affected or killed which reduce the organic nutrients in the soil.
In the nano garden pesticides and fertilizers are not used thus the plants growing in it are chemical free and healthy for human consumption. It is rare to get pests in an indoor garden. This makes this gardens environment-friendly.
In a conventional garden a lot of water is needed to water the plant and sometimes when the climate is not favorable it can lead to irrigation which also requires some labor.
In nano garden, one can use kitchen water which has been used in cleaning utensils to support it. This means that there is no increased cost and labor thus it is cheaper than a conventional garden.
Space and convenience
The conventional garden needs a lot of space to grow some plants while nano garden is the size of a refrigerator thus doesn’t require much space most of the nano gardens are stored in the kitchen as they are indoor gardens.
This makes nano garden convenient for growing some herbs and vegetables while conventional farming is preferable for growing plants that require a lot of space or grow in plantations such as maize and wheat.
In a conventional garden it’s hard to control whether or climate changes thus it can rain at the unexpected time of the year or it can be sunny when it is supposed to be raining. This makes it hard to grow specific crops as they can be affected by climate changes.
In nano garden the weather is artificial thus it is controlled according to what is being grown and its growing conditions thus climate changes has no effects on the plants and the yields are high.
In a conventional garden, genetic engineered seeds are used which are not healthy for consumption since they are not natural but made in laboratories while in nano garden the seeds are natural and not GMO which makes them very good for consumption.
